Take the chop for the new year: Short hairstyles for all ages

New Year is the perfect time for reinventing yourself with a new look, so why not consider transforming your current hairstyle by taking the chop.

Short hair can suit any age, and is a great way of starting anew, whether you're looking for a change, feel your hair is tired and unhealthy, or simply want to get away from the style you've had for the last ten years.

And we've been shown exactly how it's done from celebs of all ages. From Harry Potter's young Emma Watson, to Anne Hathaway who recently shed the long tresses for her part in Les Miserables, and Cameron Diaz who once said that her short haircut was "freeing".

Mature women needn't fear the loss of length in their locks either. Jamie Lee Curtis looks fantastic with her close-cut pixie cut, as does the iconic Bond star, 78-year-old Dame Judi Dench.

Straight, choppy, wavy or sleek – be inspired by our gallery of stunning celebrities representing all the decades of youth.
